Episode # 57 Introducing FeNO
Karen Frankland, Lead Nurse for Education and Support, FeNO by NIOX
NIOX has been at the forefront of FeNO testing for 25 years, and this year, Vitalograph is marking 60 years in respiratory diagnostics expertise.
During these 60 years, Vitalograph has become synonymous with spirometry; and as an organization, it is continually looking at how it can enable better patient outcomes, with accurate, reliable data, through a range of diagnostic solutions.
On today’s conversation, we are exploring Spirometry and FeNO testing. Specifically, how these tests provide physicians with a variety of data to inform asthma care pathways for patients.
Karen Frankland is a primary care respiratory nurse specialist and qualified teacher with a wide range of experience within the N.H.S., occupational health, research, the pharmaceutical industry, and education. I have been involved in education, which is my passion! for approximately 20 years.
Her current role is as Lead Nurse for Education and Clinical Support for The NIOX Group where I am responsible for the design and delivery of masterclass educational events on the topic of asthma and Fractional Exhaled Nitric Oxide Testing (FeNO).
She also works with several other organizations and training providers, delivering training for a range of health care professionals. Topics include asthma, COPD, spirometry and FeNO. Organizations include M&K Update, Primary Care Respiratory Training Centre plus a few pharmaceutical companies.
